    I am on a roof top mounted antena that gets good Analog reception. I connected the Insignia converter box as directed in the instructions. After running the search for channels I get the local subchannels, which I could never recieve without the conveter, however, I can't get the main channels? I ran through the installation several timnes but to no avail.

    I called the 1-800 help number and was told that I would not beable to recieve the base channels until after they had changed to didigital? The individual seemed more interested in getting my marketing information, ie name, telephone and email etc.? I figured he was not an actual technitian, but a marketing person so i'm trying here.

    I hope you can help? Best Buy has never let me down on other products.

    After hooking up my converter box to my tv antenna and following the steps given I am not able to receive any channels I'm getting a no signal message on my tv screen. What's wrong?

    My insignia converter is hooked up correctly. The channels have been scanned. All of my local except one come in very clear. I even get channels that I never recieved before. One channel that is local, WRC has digital service, but my converter is saying no signal on the screen. I used to be able to receive that channel with the rabbit ears. Now with the rabbit ears connected to the converter this channel does not come in at all. But the others do. Is there a solution?

    When we first got the box, we got all the regular channels, plus a bunch of new ones. Our public TV (Channel 11) gave us 4 options. Now all of those channels show "no signal."

    Inconsistent reception.  After first installing units upstairs and downstairs, got all stations except Channel 4 (CBS).  In afternoon, received Channel 4; everything is great.  

    Late last night, no signal at all upstairs.  Today, no channel 2 (Fox) upstairs, no channel 4 up or down.

    I have an amplified antenna.   This makes no sense.

    I have hooked up my converter box and get no signal nothing works.

    I have a very large outdoor tv antenna that works perfectly for analog. When I connected the digital converter box, I do not get all of the channels I once did. Some of the channels that were clear before now indicate "no signal" or 10% at most. Reaiming the antenna still did not correct the problem.

I had the same problem, but then I figured out that after running the channel search and after it locks all your channels in, the Insignia remote become the remote you use to change channels. (You can't use your regular TV remote to change channels as it will just show a "fuzzy" screen.) I still have to use the TV remote for power and sometimes volume, but the Insignia remote is the channel changer one.

Double check ALL your ant wire connections. Then reprogram the converter to check for stations again. If that doesn't work then reposition your antenna and reprogram again.

All my lights just went out except my turn signals what could it be? i have a 2003 zx 12

If everything like the dash and other lights work except the headlights, check the fuses first then the high beam switch for faulty contacts inside most likely. Either take the switch apart or spray contact cleaner (can get from radio schack) into the switch while flipping it on/off high/low beam several times to clean it.

Hooked my 2007 Sprinter camping trailer to the factory lights/brakes hook-up located below bumper of my 2005 Silverado 4x4 extended cab truck. Everything works fine except for the right trailer turn...

Is this a 4 way or 6 way connection system? If your truck is wrong, then all factory equipped trailer package harnesses would be wrong, tell your trailer guy...I don't think so.
Is this the first trailer you have hauled?
Let me know, and we will go from there.

Iphone wont turn on

To fix this, you need to hook it up to your computer, run itunes, and let itunes recognize it. Itunes will notice it's not working right (you may need to play with it a bit to get to this point, otherwise just choose restore). When it's all connected, use iTunes to restore your phone to factory and try the jailbreaking all over again.

Good luck, let me know how that goes.

Onkyo TX-SR502 AV receiver

this could be the pre amp transistor or the power amp that needs replacing
the pre amp transistor is cheap but the power amp is not
if you did not crank it , then it is probably just the transistor that needs replacing

DVD movies do not play

A blue screen means the TV is not receiving a video signal. Check all connections, then try another player, cable, etc. Also, check DVD and TV AV settings.
